KSI to Debut Disinfect-able Keyboard at HIMSS 2017

HIMSS Inks Promising New Strategic PartnershipWith HIMSS 2017 now underway, the innovations are rolling out left and right.

Among the top innovators at the convention is KSI. The company, we’re told, will unveil a new, innovative medical keyboard, the KSI-1802R SX, at HIMSS 2017 this week in Orlando.

KSI has designed an extraordinary product in the KSI-1802R SX.

An integrated WaveID dual band card reader that facilitates contact-less smart card logon, together with a silicon-surfaced pro-grade 500dpi fingerprint sensor, protects the clinical desktop and ensures irrefutable dual authentication that is ePrescribe, I-STOP and FIPS 201 compliant.

The KSI-1802R SX’s smooth, crevice-free surface – impervious to penetration by dirt and liquids – can be scrubbed, sprayed or wiped clean to eliminate 98% of harmful germs that cause HAIs. An end user needs only to push the keyboard’s award-winning LinkSmart™ button to disengage keys and prevent input of errant data. Using approved cleaning products, the surface is disinfected during a brief cleaning cycle before keys reengage for resumption of input. Download of KSI San-a-Key® software adds access to scheduled cleaning, onscreen cleaning prompts, an animated cleaning aid, plus powerful analytics that comprise a total infection control program. With San-a-Key®, clinicians can determine when, where and by whom a KSI keyboard was cleaned on an enterprise-wide basis.

“In the 1802, KSI developed a product unique to the healthcare marketplace – one that holds the promise of saving countless patient lives while providing the highest level of desktop security available today,” said KSI CEO Philip J. Bruno. “Ease of use, award-winning technology, compatibility with leading SSO software, and an abundance of mix and match options set the KSI-1802R SX apart from all other input devices in meeting the demands of healthcare and government compliance. Our new keyboard is a feature-packed germ-fighting tool that benefits hospital administrators, infection prevention professionals on the frontline of providing care, and the entire patient population.”
